By Philippe Garner. Published by Taschen. 1996 softcover. Out of print. Sixties Design provides a richly illustrated survey of a remarkable decade. The text reviews the period through certain all-important themes—the Modernist continuum, pop culture, space age styles, utopian ambitions and ‘anti-design’, identifying the impact of new thinking on every area of design. Embracing a wide variety of media, and making connections between domestic and industrial design, graphics, film, fashion, architecture and city planning, the illustrations highlight the best design examples of the decade. Philippe Garner is an expert in 20th-century photography, design, and decorative art. A former director of Christie’s, he has also curated shows for museums in London, Paris, and Tokyo.
